DESCRIPTION:
(from A&E's press release, May 2009) Season two of the hit A&E original scripted drama series "The Cleaner," starring Benjamin Bratt, Grace Park, Amy Price-Francis and Esteban Powell premieres Tuesday, June 23 at 10PM ET/PT. The second season will feature thirteen one-hour episodes. In its first season, on a weekly three telecast cume basis, "The Cleaner" averaged 4.2 million total viewers, 2.4 million adults 25-54 and 2.2 million adults 18-49 in primetime, becoming the number one original drama in A&E history. Inspired by the true story of real life "extreme interventionist" Warren Boyd, who also co-executive produces the series, "The Cleaner" stars Bratt as William Banks, a recovering addict who must balance his unwavering dedication to helping others get clean with an increasingly rocky personal life and the ghosts of his addictions. Banks and his teammates Akani Cuesta (Park) and Arnie Swenton (Powell) employ an unconventional and often by any means necessary approach to getting addicts and those who surround them to realize they've reached rock-bottom and help them begin the process of recovery. With every success and failure, William wrestles with his commitment to his work and his love for his wife Melissa (Price-Francis) and their children through an unusual relationship with God.
